Why these two shows?

They're both superb performances, but quite dissimilar.

It's like comparing a 1982 Mouton Rothschild to a 1990 Jaboulet Hermitage la Chapelle.

Who can say which is better? Conventional wisdom recognizes the Fall '72 show as a vine de garde from a spectacular vintage packed with fine performances. The '73 horn show is from an appellation not widely regarded for such quality but is nonetheless a tour de force...

What about D.S.>Dew from Dick's Picks 36 at The Spectrum? 9/21/72 I believe.

and tell me u have those vintages? I need to do prep on fine merlots and other redz for the upcoming infamouse Harvest Wine Fest on Labor weekend.(Local yokel) A list of permormers. I'll compare fine tastes plus enjoy 4:20PM water hydration brakes. A shot a glass of h2o & a couple coughs between tastings. The outdoor venue helps especially on those flights. And i bicycle it. I shall taste I hope to remember.

Remember, at 20 after any hr, it's 4:20 somewhere. http://tinyurl.com/3gq7bvn

oh, the 73 Darkstar

Two good versions of Dark Star,one good Morning Dew and one transcendent Morning Dew.The 9/11/73 Dew is played with great depth and emotion,while a little shaky through to the first jam,at about 5 minutes the contrast between Jerry's rippling guitar lines,Phil's aggressive ,pummeling bass and Billy's just right accent drumming set this one on a path for a great finish.Following the first verse and slow build up at about 9:45 Jerry starts to cook and Keith finally surfaces and a trio forms Jerry on one end,Phil on the other,Keith in the middle,as they play off one another the intensity builds at 11:45 Jerry is playing fully formed fan runs,while Keith stabs madman style and Phil just annihilates the gym with throbbing full throttle bass,into the end vocal.A remarkable version.This is a fine example of why Keith was the best pianist/keyboardist the band ever had,a true sense of what was needed,how much and when.

I'm not sure the issue here is 'which version is better.'
I'm no wine guy but with classic vintages can't there be simple preferences held, of one over another, without intending any slight to the unselected given a choice?
I prefer the 2/2/70 Dark Star to 5/11/72, but both are clearly spectacular imo.
